5–11 May - Basic Week 1:
Astroshamanic Trance Dance and Drumming


12–18 May - Advanced Week 2:
Astroshamanic Trance Dance Healing

Shamans use dance to reach expanded states of consciousness, communicate with spirits and bring healing on a planetary and individual level.

This programme deepens the practice of trance dance and shamanic sound production. The programme is designed for newcomers as well as if you want to consolidate previous experience with astroshamanic trance dance. Completion of the programme provides a solid basis for more advanced work and allows you to continue autonomously with clarity and sense of purpose.

The programme consists of two workshops, each can also be attended independently.

Basic Week 1: Astroshamanic Trance Dance and Drumming
Trance dance and sound are used as transformational tools to open the pathway to expanded states of consciousness and a profound awareness of ourselves and our environment. During the week we employ movement to animate deep emotions and stagnant energies, redirecting them to support highest potentials, empower authentic visions and step into the healing flow. It includes astroshamanic chants, planetary alignment dances, sound healing, shape-shifting rituals, and the basic astroshamanic drumming method.

Advanced Week 2: Astroshamanic Trance Dance Healing
A special opportunity to experience the transformational effects of shamanic trance dance, music and percussion on the human body, mind and spirit. This is an intense week designed for those who wish to deepen their experience with dance, including participants who intend to use astroshamanic trance dance and sound production in their healing practice with others. The previous week (or another one-week trance dance workshop with Franco) is a prerequisite for attendance.
